Famous Quotes

The following quotes were made by celebrities, athletes, politicians and businessmen.  Can you name them?

I once remarked "All those years I was a young actor in Hollywood, I never dreamed my son would wind up owning it."

Since the mid-1980's my daughter has served as chairman and CEO of the company I founded in the 1950's.  She has pushed our stock to an all-time high, no small feat for a woman in a male oriented business.

In each cartoon that I draw, I hide my daughter Nina's name.

My dad gave me the same nickname that he had given to a combat buddy who saved his life by waking him one night and telling him not to move because a viper was poised inches beneath his eye.

My dad not only passed down a family business (and most of the family fortune) to me, but he coined the phrase "He who dies with the most toys wins."

When I was about to witness the birth of my son, I told my wife "I've seen aliens, so I'm ready."

"It is a wise father that knows his own child."

To be a successful father...there's one absolute rule: when you have a kid,  don't look at it for the first two years."

I had nine children and raised them all to believe that politics was "the noblest profession."
